Microsoft and Uber will leave the Internet Association, a tech industry lobbying group, Axios reported Tuesday.
The loss of the two tech giants is a sign of the association's shrinking influence. A Microsoft spokesperson told Axios that the company "periodically review(s) trade association memberships to ensure alignment with our policy agenda."
Founded in 2012, the once-strong advocacy group has six locations and close to 40 members, including Google and Amazon. But its lack of focus on antitrust issues, along with the fragmented priorities of tech companies, have caused it to lose clout.
The group has also lost several staff members in the past year.
